Body Image Journal Prompts

Grab your Purge journal, find a private place, and let’s clean out some emotional wounds!

Let the emotions and words flow freely. There’s no right or wrong. It’s possible in your journaling to connect to things that originally felt unrelated or that you didn’t want to look into. Do what feels safe and comfortable. Stretch yourself but only to the point that is safe. Remember emotions are temporary, especially if we express them in a healthy way like writing. And they become even more temporary and manageable the more we process them in these healthy ways.

Enjoy uncovering the layers and good luck!

If your body never changed from this moment, could you love and accept yourself wholly?

If not, why not?

What is dissatisfying about this body at the moment? Where did you learn this belief about your body? Who gave you this belief?

Does this belief (that your body is not enough or right in some way) serve you? (A.K.A. Do you get some benefit from continuing to believe this?)

What would happen (good and bad) if you removed this belief?

Are you ready to release this belief?

If so, what steps do you need to take to free yourself?

If not yet, what do you need to feel safe/comfortable to release this belief?
